that election, this past weekend, on saturday, rhode island proved them wrong. saturday was a terrible, terrible day on the east coast in terms of weather. just one of those storms that, i don't know, maybe looked pretty in retrospect on sunday when you could see all the snow that had fallen, but when it was coming down on saturday, it was freaking windy and icy and slushy, and it just got worse and worse all day long, and it hurt to walk outside. saturday was like having a snow cone mashed in your face by somebody in a bad mood. and on saturday, in the middle of that weather, in the little town of exeter, rhode island, they had huge voter turnout, even in that storm, even though it was a saturday, even though all they were voting on was a little town-specific, municipal matter. they nearly tripled the turnout. they nearly tripled the voter turnout that massachusetts had been able to muster for a congressional race that was held just a few days earlier on a normal tuesday, like a normal election and everything. exeter put them to shame. exeter, rhode island, has 5,000 registered voters, more or

running into the same problem. when we look at it nationally e. from rhode island to california, you're looking at unfunded pensions and the train on budgets, whether it's state or county budgets. there has to be a way to rationalize the system. i agree with tony, there's a way to find an answer to this. there's a political way to do it, and it can be done. the issue to me, you have to balance it between the cuts, and then the revenue side. and i think the question in illinois that's going to come up next is, what do you do with a temporary state income tax hike that we have? does that become permanent? you have to start addressing the revenue issue as well. and i think that has been part of the discussion that has been somewhat ignored as we focused on cuts and trying to get on the good side. >> bob, i'm going to get to chicago: >> what would you sigh as a short-term solution to save illinois? >> short and long-term solution on this is very simple. you had a situation in illinois where the richest man in illinois, ken griffin, a friend of the mayor, he's the richest man in illinois

to the floor today with my friend, the senator from rhode island, jack reed, to share our concerns about the weak labor market, those who have been unemployed for so long and its impact on the nation's 11 million unemployed. senator reed are especially concerned about those who have been without work for an extended period of time. it's been four years since the end of the great recession, and while the nation's economy has been slowly recovering, steadily adding jobs, a large sector of society is still out of work. of the nation's 11 million unemployed, a little over four million of our friends and neighbors are considered long-term unemployed. that means they have been without work for six months or more. most people who find themselves out of work are eligible to receive assistance from their state for 26 weeks as they look for a new job. but for far too many, finding a new job in the sluggish economy has been extremely difficult. when state aid is exhausted, federal emergency unemployment insurance kicks in and helps families to help make ends meet. however, that safety net is now ab
